She will be lovingly remembered by her son Mike, his partner Kellsey, only grandson Brandon Michael Del, precious sister Joan Duguay (AJ), niece and nephews Jeff (Lorraine) Duguay, Dana (Tony/Ian) Martinusen and daughter Jenna, Steven Duguay and girlfriend Jennifer, Mark (Kerry) Duguay and children Justin, Ryan and Jordan, Stuart (Debra) Duncan and children Bryce, Rane and Rhiann, and Janie Duncan. Also remembered by the Day and Millard Families with whom she was very close. She was predeceased by her loving husband Del on November 4, 1995, mother Gladys, father Archie, sister Marilyn and brother-in-law Stuart (Diggy) Duncan, Joan's husband Al Duguay, and great nephew Brett Duncan. Growing up in Winnipeg, Carol attended Greenway Elementary, General Wolf Junior High and Daniel Macintyre Collegiate. Later, careers with the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, General Electric and Sherbrook Realty. Carol met her husband Del at the drug store next to Thomson Funeral Chapels on Broadway in 1956. Three weeks later they were engaged, one year later they were married, thirteen years later they shared their only child Michael Dale. The Millard's spent the next 39 summers in sunny Grand Marais, eventually building their retirement home on Lake Winnipeg together in 1992 on Grand Marais Boulevard. Carol and Del had numerous beach friends, who raised their families together at the 2nd step at Grand Beach. Neighbours regularly visited as she enjoyed working in her yard, or over the cocktail hour around the BBQ. Carol deeply loved all of the beach family. Carol was active in her communities and enjoyed her involvement with the Canadian Cancer Society, Progressive Conservative Party and Grand Marais Property Owners Association. Lady Carol and Noble Del spent many evening and weekends with their Khartum Shrine family, including the Chanter, the Divan, and Past Potentates. Their most memorable year was 1991, when Carol shared Del's year as Potentate. Their son Michael, now follows in his Father's footsteps, as a member of Phoenix Lodge #187 A.F A.M. Carol was also an active member of the Khartum Ladies Auxiliary. Carol dearly loved her only grandson Brandon, the light of her life, spending numerous hours playing games, puzzles, reading or listening to stories about his hockey games or motocross races. Mom was very friendly, generous, and loved her family more than anything in the world. Mike, Kellsey and Brandon wish to thank and acknowledge Mom's sister Auntie Joanie for the continuous care she provided to Mom, her endless compassion, and countless hours spent attending to Mom as her health declined. Carol and her sister Joan have lived together for the past 3 years in Winnipeg and Grand Marais. Mom and AJ are commonly referred to as The Birds by the family, or the Tweeters by grandson Brandon. Mom's dog and companion Chloe, remains with Joan. Funeral Service to be held at Thomson in the Park, Tuesday, October 12th at 2:30 p.m. with interment and reception to follow.
